It’s never a bad time to be a fan of the Percy Jackson books. However, it certainly is an auspicious time to be a fan these days. The Disney+ Percy Jackson and the Olympians series debuts later this year and we’ve seen the first trailer. The first new Percy Jackson story in 14 years arrived in the world yesterday. Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Chalice of the Gods has undoubtedly been flying off shelves. Author Rick Riordan held an event to launch the book and he revealed some huge news to fans attending the event. The author unveiled another brand-new Percy Jackson book! Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Wrath of the Triple Goddess arrives in September 2024.
We first saw this news on Twitter. As you can see from the below video, fans expressed enthusiasm for the news. Though there’s no official word on how many more Percy Jackson books we’ll get, it seems likely Riordan may publish a complete trilogy about this phase of Percy’s life. Chalice of the Gods sees Percy preparing to head to college. That’s not a simple change for a regular human, much less a demigod. And let’s be real. Percy’s been busy with the gods. His school record is not impeccable. Wrath of the Triple Goddess, which will be the seventh book in the Percy Jackson series, will follow Percy as he continues his quests for college recommendation letters.
Two things we do know about Wrath of the Triple Goddess thanks to fans at the launch event: it will feature Hecate and also Mrs. O’Leary. Mrs. O’ Leary is Percy’s pet hellhound and a very good dog.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Wrath of the Triple Goddess will be out on September 24, 2024. It’s not available for pre-order yet. But that’s okay, we have Chalice of the Gods to keep us busy.
